Ticker Change Day: 16 Weeks

Weekly Survey

  • How far along?: 16 Weeks
  • Total weight gain: ?: starting weight was 126.
  • How big is baby?: The size of a grenade at 4½ inches long (head to rump) and weighs 3½ ounces.
  • Maternity clothes?:Yep
  • Stretch marks?: No new ones so far.
  • Sleep?: Good, but I can't seem to get enough of it. I am tired no matter how many hours I get at night.
  • Best moment this week/Milestones?: This week was pretty crappy. I've been avoiding my parents as much as possible. The best moment was when they left for a weekend in California. I finally felt like I could just be. Then of course, my mom ruined it by texting me about their trip to the garment district in LA and then going for sushi. Thanks for rubbing it in my face!
  • Movement?: It's getting pretty consistent, but still really light. He's giving me tiny little kicks right now! :)
  • Food cravings?: I'll eat anything, but I'm really wanting sweets!
  • Belly button in or out?: Same
  • What I miss: Nothing pregnancy related: I really miss our house. As much as it sucked to lose it, I never really missed it before now.
  • What I'm looking forward to: Our appointment on Thursday. I doubt there will be an ultrasound, but I'm crossing my fingers that we'll get to listen to the heart beat.
  • Developments: His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect than it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. His ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren't recognizable yet. He's even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as baby continues to develop.
